Filep Karma Freed!

One of the West Papuan Political Prisoners for whom we have been campaigning for several years has been released!

Filep Karma was arrested in December 2004 and jailed in May 2005 for 15 years for peacefully demonstrating for West Papuan independance, and waving a 'Morning Star' flag - he was one of several people sentenced, and refused early release and clemency since he would have needed to accept guilt and conditions to do with non re-offending! He has always claimed that peacefully raising the Morning Star flag was not a crime, and has been supported in this by Amnesty International.
